Chris was a pilot.
Today in the Lives Lived column of the Globe and Mail I read about Christopher David Ireson. The column was lovingly written by his parents.
Chris found out about the cancer that took his life when he was taking his medical to become an Air Canada pilot.
Unfortunately, I will never have the opportunity to be flown on an Air Canada flight by Christopher but the story of his life as outlined by his parents will help pilot me through life.
Chirs and his wife Kourtenay had a wall hanging with the following questions:
How well did you live?
How well did you love?
How well did you learn to let go?
So I believe, Chris still is a pilot in the lives of the people he touched including me as I read his story in Lives Lived.
